Thanks.  They are called Oneals and are on the 5 last, I think (I'll double check later).  One very comfortable shoe.  Chili colored. My only pair in that color.   I need some more.

Wearing my Mora today. Its on 8 last – which is perfect for my feet type. I applied loads of conditioner on the vamp area on Mora this morning for 1 hour before polishing them off. But the left shoe is showing quit ugly looking crease ( its like bow and creasing inwards) where right shoe showing 1 shell like roll and crease on the either side on the roll. What I am thinking the conditioner didn't penetrate the leather on the left shoe as much as it did on the right one. Pictures will follow….

I just bought a pair of AE Lloyd's on the Bay and was wondering if they are cordovan?  I've never owned a pair of cordovan shoes but have read that one way to tell is the creases tend to lighten instead of darken like calf skin.  The creases on the ones I bought are lighter.  I haven't been able to find much online about the Lloyds.  I did a search on here too but didn't find anything definitive on if any Lloyd's were made of cordovan or not. Sorry for rambling a bit, I just want to make sure I take care of them the right way.

The Lloyd was made in cordovan, but as far as determining whether your pair is, maybe it would help if you posted pictures. If it helps you figure it out, cordovan has a tendency to ripple rather than create micro-creases that you see on calf shoes.

What color are they? Pictures would help. If it is the Lloyd that looks similar to the current McCallister, i'm pretty sure it isn't cordovan.

Sherman Brothers is running a 15% off AE with code "warmupfb".  Shell is included.  They don't charge to ship to you, or tax.  I've used them before and they even helped me get my shark Cliftons.  Very reliable and super cool.  Not bad savings, if anyone is interested.  Shoes drop-ship from AE.

Can anyone comment whether the eagle county boots run large or true to size?

I may be wrong, and you own the shoes so you may know better, but I thought these shoes were called the Berkley?

None necessary.

 

I just got a little overly excited because I've been trying to find some.  There's supposedly a shortage of Renomat in Europe, and the customer support people at the Hanger Project told me it'll be 2-3 more weeks before they get any.

Cross-posted from The Hanger Project thread. Used Saphir Mahogany polishes on my brown burnished calf Delrays.

 

Lots of Pics (Click to show)

I have a pair of Allen Edmonds Delrays in the Brown Burnished Calf color that I decided to treat properly. As a graduate student, I don't wear dress shoes often. I've only worn these out once and several times around the house to break in and try on other clothes. They have one coat of AE Brown Premium Polish. I was never impressed with the AE Premium Polish on my Malverns, so I started from scratch.

 

 

I used the mahogany color as recommended on Kirby's blog to match brown burnished calf. It's mostly brown with some red. This pic might make it look a little more purplish than in reality, but it's close.

 

 

First, a pic of the shoes when they started. All these pics were taken with a flash and I did my best to correct the color.

 

 

 

Throughout the process, I followed Kirby's instructions on the Presidential Shoe Shine blog entry.

 

After applying Reno'Mat. I was worried for a little bit that I'd been too agressive with it. The shoes end up a very flat, lifeless color.

 

 

After applying Renovateur.

 

 

Three coats of Pommadier Cream Shoe Polish.

 

 

And finally, three coats of Pate de Luxe Wax Shoe Polish.

 

 

I thought the mahogany was a perfect match for brown burnished calf. With more time I think I could make them look even better. My other dress shoes will definitely be getting the Saphir treatment, starting with my Malverns next week, then Leeds when it's time to go back into uniform. Thanks Kirby!

Nuemok owners please help.

I purchased a pair of Nuemok's in 11D and they fit fine in width (snug but not tight) but had too much toe room.

I imagine 10.5D will be good in length but will there be a significant difference in width with a half size down?

I wear 11D in Strand, Dalton and Weybridge.

I've searched this thread and some people talk about sizing down for length but I can't finding discussion how it affects width.

I would probably wear these sockless as a casual summer shoe.

I live in Toronto so I can't find a store to try them. And I lost ~$80 in shipping to buy and return the first pair so I'd hate to have that happen again. Appreciate the help.

I'm curious about this statement. Why are vintage models better quality? Being new to the "better" shoe scene, I don't know anything about the quality of shoes beyond one year ago. Has AE quality decreased? Is it something with the leather? This is not the first time I have heard this statement - I believe fritzl mentioned that vintage AEs had good quality leather, but I'm not clear what the difference is.
